Prayer for Monday Morning

Heavenly Father,

As I start this Monday morning, I come before You with a grateful heart, giving You all the honor, glory, and praise.

Thank You for Your faithfulness and Your provision in my life. I acknowledge that without You, I am nothing and can do nothing.

I ask that You would give me wisdom and guidance as I begin this new week, that Your word may be a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. I pray that You would give me the strength and the energy to accomplish all that You have called me to do, in accordance with Your purpose and plan for my life.

I ask that You would protect me and keep me safe throughout the day, covering me with Your holy armor and guiding my every step. I trust in Your goodness and Your love for me, knowing that You are always working for my good.

I ask that You would grant me the wisdom to make good decisions, and the discernment to know Your will for my life, so that I may live a life pleasing to You and bring glory to Your name.

I pray for Your blessings upon my relationships, my work, and my community, that Your love and grace may be evident in all that I do.

I ask that You would give me the courage to share Your love with those around me, and the boldness to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. I confess my sins and ask for Your forgiveness, and I thank You for the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.

I pray that Your spirit guides me, empowers me, and fills me, that I may bear fruit that glorifies Your name. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
